VDUB IS A GREAT SHOW TO TRADE AT
We have a large market area and a variety of options for trading at our show. There are weekend pitches, vintage day trader pitches, food pitches and auto-jumble pitches. We are careful about who we book and try to avoid too much duplication of goods. Our standard pitch sizes are 6m deep with a width of 6, 12, or 18m. Catering is carefully managed and most of our traders tend to return each year.
There are four steps to trading at our event, please follow them.
The main market of the event - stalls can be open from Friday afternoon until close on Sunday.
Not for catering (these are booked as food stalls: see below) and no alcohol sales are allowed.
VW memorabilia, parts, clothing, art outdoor lifestyle, camping. Power is available as an extra when booking, or can be added later using the links below (no generators allowed). 2 event passes included with the stall booking and space to camp.
6, 12, or 18m wide
WEEKEND VW AND MARKET TRADING (from £70)
Saturday is Vintage Day at Vdub at the Pub and we have always attracted a strong collection of vintage stalls.
Stalls get to set up next to the main market but can trade for the same Friday through Sunday period.
Vintage clothing, music, home wares, art and collectibles.
6m deep, 6, 12, or 18m wide
VINTAGE WEEKEND TRADING (from £70)
These stalls are for non commercial traders wanting to sell used car parts for VW's.
Stalls will be positioned on the outer edge of the car show arena and do not have power.
Stalls are 6m deep and 6m wide and do not include camping.
AUTOJUMBLE (from £40)
We carefully select traders to ensure we do not duplicate the type of food offer at the show. Many of the traders return each year but we do get a few opportunities to introduce new ones. We expect our traders to have a real zest for what they do, have a great menu and reasonable prices. Your food should be served in sustainable containers and you should consider vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options for your menu. Your catering unit must be registered with a local authority.

Takeaway Food to Eat
Vdub at the Pub has a variety of food trade pitches available. We carefully manage the food traders to try and prevent product overlap and ensure that the number of traders is balanced with the ability to trade successfully. We vet potential food traders on menu quality, pricing, stand appearance and compliance with food safety. Food stall applications are only taken using the Catering Terms & Application Form above (not the online form below) with aditional terms and conditions.
We have a wide variety of stalls including crafts, stickers, car accessories, clothing, market, antiques, fancy goods, camping equipment etc. Standard stalls are 6m x 6m but double and triple widths can be booked too.
We will have a dedicated auto-jumble area, but this is for non-commercial traders selling used VW parts only.
We can make arrangements to supply your stand with power - there is an additional fee for this depending on your requirements. Please ensure you let us know when you book the pitch (using the check box on the payment option) and we will get in touch to confirm which power supply option you need (you then purchase this separately below). If you do not purchase power you will not get any and you cannot use your own generator.
